Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Cal Expo 8-6-89 Was anyone at this show? You gotta check this one out!

There are very few shows that I would rate 5 stars after 1985, however this is one that deserves a listen from everyone. Check out the new Charlie Miller version seeding right now (link below). The Scarlet/Fire is certainly one of the best version in the later years.

Anyway, one of the reviews says that Jerry was playing a Statocaster at this show. Just wondering if anyone can confirm this.

I wasn't but I have some friends that flew out from California for that run and came back with their brains blown. Apparently it was that good. I better give it a listen. I find 89 to be a very good year for the band.

I've always liked '89.
I think this show is from the Cal Expo '89 run. Pretty small, but you might be able to pick out the guitar Jerry's got.
